Obama snubbed Netanyahu for dinner with Michelle and the girls, Israelis claim
Daily Telegraph ^ | 03/25/2010 | Adrian Blomfield

Posted on 03/25/2010 9:22:39 AM PDT by propertius

Benjamin Netanyahu was left to stew in a White House meeting room for over an hour after President Barack Obama abruptly walked out of tense talks to have supper with his family, it emerged on Thursday.

The snub marked a fresh low in US-Israeli relations and appeared designed to show Mr Netanyahu how low his stock had fallen in Washington after he refused to back down in a row over Jewish construction in east Jerusalem.

The Israeli prime minister arrived at the White House on Tuesday evening brimming with confidence that the worst of the crisis in his country's relationship with the United States was over.

...

When the Israeli prime minister stalled, Mr Obama rose from his seat declaring: "I'm going to the residential wing to have dinner with Michelle and the girls."

As he left, Mr Netanyahu was told to consider the error of his ways. "I'm still around," Mr Obama is quoted by Israel's Yediot Ahronot newspaper as having said. "Let me know if there is anything new."

I really believe that is why G-d has blessed the USA so much is because we have been a friend and staunch supporter of Israel. Look at what has happened to the British in 60 short years. Gone from “sun never set” to “irrelevant” because they opposed Israel’s re-creation.

BTW, Q: why did’t the sun ever set? A: G-d could never trust the British in the dark.

You crack me up! I can’t take my eyes off of Netanyahu when he speaks. He is such a remarkable leader. I’m a Christ follower. As a nation we’ve replaced the bedrock of Jeudeo-Christian principles of our foundation, with the quicksand of secular progressivism. It’s very sad for those that don’t know to trust in God’s plan, but rather far too many put their trust on some politician’s plan. I pray for those poor misguided souls.

Israel should deny entry to George Mitchell. Since the US has embargoed Israel for the last year of all military weapons while providing 10 Billion to the arabs, they have lost their leverage.

That's alright, Netanyahu said what he needed to say to Hussein-O during this visit; it didn't need to be over dinner. In fact, if I were Bibi, I'd prefer not to share a meal with that jihadist sympathizer commie SOB.

Anything new, let's see... How about the Palestinians have unequivocally agreed to immediately and unconditionally lay down their arms, recognize Israel and its right to exist, and stop trying to kill Jews. < /sarcasm >

Meeting with the Republicans would now be a perfect move. Israel could see who the real allies are, plus it would send the message that Bibi is dealing with those who will be in power in the near future.

Bibi’s aides should have persuaded him not to have come.

Bibi is a true leader. He had to come and face evil even if he personally doesn't want to. By contrast, Obama, a false prophet, will always shy away from anything that he can't control.

Why am I not surprised? How inspiring to know that our president is a total jerk.

Wake up leftie American Jews. If American conservatives are destroyed, so too will Israel be. Please, don’t repeat your mistake in 2012 of voting for this man in huge numbers a second time.

I remember reading about the phenomenon of the “self-hating Jew” that was common in Jewish literature in the 1920s and 1930s. Are we now seeing another manifestation of this or are these people really duped? Thank God some Jews have bucked the trend and refused to join the Dark Side.

That is a good question, and I do not have an answer. From where does the funding for the Palestinian Authority come? I thought most of it came from Saudi Arabia and Egypt, but this is only a guess. The whole world seems to be against Israel, and until today, America was its own ally.

Just sent to both McCain and Lieberman’s offices

Sen. McCain and Sen. Lieberman both asked the White House to tone down the rhetoric this administration is taking towards Israel. Does the Senator have a comment on the disrespectful, tasteless and crass way the Prime Minister of Israel was treated at the White House last night?

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/northamerica/usa/barackobama/7521391/Obama-snubbed-Netanyahu-for-dinner-with-Michelle-and-the-girls-Israelis-claim.html

Benjamin Netanyahu was left to stew in a White House meeting room for over an hour after President Barack Obama abruptly walked out of tense talks to have supper with his family, it emerged on Thursday....con’t

But Mr Obama was less inclined to be so conciliatory. He immediately presented Mr Netanyahu with a list of 13 demands designed both to the end the feud with his administration and to build Palestinian confidence ahead of the resumption of peace talks. Key among those demands was a previously-made call to halt all new settlement construction in east Jerusalem.

When the Israeli prime minister stalled, Mr Obama rose from his seat declaring: “I’m going to the residential wing to have dinner with Michelle and the girls.”

As he left, Mr Netanyahu was told to consider the error of his ways. “I’m still around,” Mr Obama is quoted by Israel’s Yediot Ahronot newspaper as having said. “Let me know if there is anything new.”

Senator Lieberman, this is not the way to treat an ally and friend of America it is shameful and an embarrassment to every American.

Having already asked the administration to tone down the rhetoric on Israel, will you now demand that the President make a public apology to the Prime Minister?

Sincerely,

XXXXXXXXX

You raise some good questions. If the United States was being threatened with nuclear annihilation from Mexico, would you have any problems with a preemptive strike, including carpet bombing? You ask my reason for asking the question, which I thought that I made clear; however, I must not have been clear enough. My reason concerns the survival of Israel. Can Israel survive without the financial and military support of the United States? If I were an Israeli, I would not count on the Obama administration for support.
